The OECD has announced hiring needs of two competition specialists to be based in Mexico City. Details are available here. Below are some highlights from the posting.
- TWO PROJECT POSTS – FIXED TERM APPOINTMENTS OF ONE TO TWO YEARS (with possibility of extension)
- We are looking for two Senior Experts with substantial experience in competition policy analysis, regulation and the application of competition policy to regulations. As part of a co-operative project between the OECD and the Mexican government, they will be key members of a 12-person team of experts associated with Mexico’s independent competition authority, the Federal Competition Commission (CFC). The team will work directly with the Chairman of the CFC to develop proposals to eliminate unnecessary restrictions of competition in various laws and regulations. The CFC’s proposals will be at the core of a Presidential effort to develop new policies to increase the competitiveness of the Mexican economy. A variety of sectors will be covered.
- In addition, the Senior Experts will be responsible for using their experience to revise, update and improve the OECD’s Competition Assessment Toolkit, an important element of the Competition Committee’s programme of work. They will also prepare reports for relevant OECD committees.
- The staff members will be based at the OECD Center in Mexico City under the supervision of the Paris-based Head of Competition Division (http://www.oecd.org/competition) in the Directorate for Financial and Enterprise Affairs (DAF).
